Stewart Downing will become the first Hammer to represent England for nearly two years when he steps out at Celtic Park later this evening.

The 30-year-old midfielder has been in line to feature against Slovenia in the 3-1 win on Saturday but a minor injury curtailed his chances of featuring.

However having fully recovered, the West Ham midfielder has been named in Roy Hodgson's starting XI to face Scotland tonight.

The match is being broadcast live on TV in the UK and can be seen on ITV from 7.30pm.

England Starting XI

Forster, Clyne, Shaw, Milner, Cahill, Smalling, Wilshere, Downing, Welbeck, Rooney (c), 11 Chamberlain.

Subs: Chambers, Foster, Henderson, Walcott, Jagielka, Gibbs, Lambert, Sterling, Lallana, Barkley, Berahino.
